It was inaugurated on Sunday December 17, 2017 by the Moderator of the 21st General Assembly Rev. Julius Guantai Mwamba, through the Nairobi North Presbytery. The event was held at then PCEA Mwiki Church grounds where the larger PCEA Kasarani parish that comprised of four congregations, PCEA Kasarani, Ciiko, Baraka and Mwiki churches was split into three parishes.
Retired Rev. Simon N. Githinji was seconded to the new parish as the stand-in Moderator by the Presbytery of Nairobi North.
In May 2018, the Rev. David Gitundu Kamau was posted to the Parish as the substantive Parish Minister.

EldershipElders are pastors ordained through a rigourous identification process by the Church’s Presbytery court. They are given charge over the Districts of the local church (church cell groups) so as to shepherd and minister to all individual members of the church at the very basic level, the family. All members of the Presbyterian Church must therefore belong to a district which forms the basic unit for their spiritual growth as well as any personal ministry that one may need.
Under the elders in the Districts are chosen deacons who are assigned zones in the district to be able to effectively reach every member.
Elders are also the Patrons or pastors over the various groups and programmes established in the church for ministry to the unique categories of church members, e.g. the Men’s Fellowship, Woman’s Guild or Youth and Children ministries among others. They provide spiritual guidance as we as link and represent the various groups in the Church’s decision-making body, the Session.
The Elders, Deacons and Group leaders must endeavor to exemplify the Christian life in their own lives, character, conduct and speech. They ought to be able to share the Word of God and witness effectively. They also must be conversant with the Church doctrines and teachings. This enables to be effective leaders of the groups and persons entrusted to them.
